A Victoria dispatch of Sent. 21st says:
The day duwnod brightly and the people
of ictoria and vicinity were early ou

royal party lauded from tho Comus at
11 o'clock, tho sailors manning the yards,
bands playing, batteries saluting, and the
populace cheering. They wero received
by the lieutenant governor, who read au
a.tdress. They were then escorted to
Victoria by several hundred citizens,
and the firemen, military and bencvolcut
societies. At the city gates tho mayor
presented tho freedom of the city aud au
address, and on reaching the grand staud
500 children sang tho uatioual anthem
and another address was presented and
replies were givcu by tho marquis. As

were repeatedly cheered. All the houses
and stores along the line of march were
gaily decorated, Americans vicing with
British residents in ahoniug resject for
tho visitors. The Chinese arch was forty
feet in height aud shaped like a iwgo la.
The ornamentation cotU several thousand
dollara. Across its frout were the words,
"The Occident greeU the Orient." The
mail steamship Dakota and the U. S.

were decked in American colon. Among

A Well-Ordered Chamber.
"A place for everything, and every
thing in ita place." Applying this old
and trite proverb as a sort of text, let us
discuss the lost proposition first and find
out what is really needod in a well
.. n effete civilization demands that
every one shall provide bis or ker own
tooth-brush (you all know the tory
about Daniel Webster and the Western
congressman, don't you)? Many also
prefer to carry their own brushes and
combs, and from the way many good
people furnish, or rather neglect to fur
nish, their chambers, one might thiuk
S nests were expected to provide a ju
iaious assortment of towels, soap,
matches, etc. Such neglect, however, is
really inhospitable and unkind, as many
guests will inconvenience themselves
greatly rather than ask for necessary
toilet articles, feeling that suoh requests
imply a tacit reproach of tho hostess.
And now, assuming onr guests will
bring nothing but their tooth-brushes
with them, let us see what we shall need.
A plentiful supply of towels and wash
cloths (these lost can be bought, ready
made, of Turkish towelling for 55 cents
tier doz3n, and are much superior to
nomo-mado ones), matches, soap, and
please.good sisters.dos't buy the highly
colored, highly-scented (to conceal the
vile odor) cheap toilet soap. I believe
half the oases of pimples, tetter and skin
diseases may be traced directly to the
nso of impure soap buy only that manu
factured by reputable dealers brushes,
combs, a small hand-mirror, button
hook, pins and hair-pins.
Needles, thread and scissors suould
also find a place on the dressing table,
for one often finds a rip or rent wuiio
dressing, and "a stitch in time," etc.
Add to these a combing jacket and a
pair ot light bod-room suppers, and
your guests will rise up and call you
For all these articles proper recepta
cles are required, and hero are some odd
and protty designs: For a night-dress
take a piece of glace or silesia, eighteen
inches wide, thirty-two long, cover one
side with dotted muslin or net, turn over
a length of twelve inches, and stitch up
the sides; this leaves a flap of eight
inches to fold over envelope fashion; the
end may be slicod off at each corner or
cut to a point; fasten with loop and but
ton bidden under a tiny bow or blue
ribbon, a bow also being plaoed on each
corner, lulgo all around nap and lour
sides with insertion and lace the last
put on slightly full. Braided pique,
canvass (the kind woven iu alternate
closo and open stripes is the prettiest),
embroidered with silks or crewels, even
unbleached muslin worked with red or
blue ingrain cotton, may be used in
stead of glace and net.
Pretty night-dress cases are also made
wall pocket shape, to bo hung on the
wall with cord and tassels. J. hey can be
made of any of the above materials, but
should be lined with stiff cardboard.
"Sleep well," "Good night," or some
other approprnito legend should be
worked or braided on tho front to dis
tinguish them from the ordinary wall
A piece of glace taentv-ono by twenty-
two inches will be required for brush
cases. Cover one side with uet, double
in half, and stitch up tho sides; trim the
uppermost Ride with lauo; place a tiny
bow of ribbou at each corner, and two
down the center, about four inches re
spectively from top and bottom. The
stitches fastening these couter ont-s must
bo taken clear through to the under side,
thus making two divisious into which
you slip your brushes.
Comb cases usually match night dress
cases in shape and material only smaller.
pretty way is to mako thorn like an
old-fa.shioned button bag, with drawing
strings and bow of ribbou. The bottom
should be a circular piece of cardboard,
neatly covered with silk or glace; the
upper part of silk or glace covered with
net. A case tor a siugle comb is made
by joining two pieces of cardboard, a
little wider, but not quite as long as the
comb, together, cover with silk, aud em
broider a pretty vino iu cross stitch. A
curved piece should bo cut out of tho
upiHr end of the case to allow the comb
to lie slipped out easily.
Gold or silver cardboard does very
nicely for hairpin case and hair receiver;
be sparing of this, however, or it will
give your room a cheap, tawdry look.
For hair receiver, cut a piece eight
inches by six and ono-half; work
all arouud the edgo with zephyr in cross-
stitch; work monogram, initial, or what
ever you choose iu the center; sow tlto
two sides together cornucopia fashion;
the top must be edged arouud with
chenille or box-pleating of narrow rib
bon, long loops of tho same attached to
the point at the bottom, and a bow to the
projecting point at the top.
A piece of very stiff paper may be cov
ered with glace aud net, aud made up iu
exactly the same way ; an iuside case of
note paper may bo slipped in to receive
A case for hair-pins may be mado by
covering a tin can (a fonr-ouuee spico
cau will do nicely) with gold or silver
cardboard, worked to match hair re
ceiver; around the lower edgo a piece of
silk three or four inches wide m sewed
rather full; tho lower edge of tho silk is
gathered to a pniut, s 'i-.,i-hig fashion,
aud ornamented m! U im-. h. cheuille
or ribbon, i'lie ii u-.il i ;inr.i of case
is trimmed nnu.i l in the muh way. All
the.se cases are to be bung up by chenille
or ribbon whichever is used "in trim
ming. Tho prett'est hairpin holder I have
ever seen is known as the '"Fairy-Hod-mother's
llat;" a circular piece of card
board four and one-fourth inches in di
ameter, is covered with cloth pinked on
the edgo, and euibroiJered with a pretty
vino dona in various stitches and con
trastiug colors; iu the center set a cylin-intier-shaped
piece of cardboard two and
oiio-half iuches high, aud eue and seven
eighths inches across; this holds the
hairpius, and must be fastened down se
curely Aith loug stitches; it is covered
ou both sides with cambric, and tho
lower part is trimmed with two box
pleated ruffles of satin ribbon an inch
wide; the upper ruffle is hcadod with
half an inch strip of cloth pinked on the
edoe aud embroidered to match the
lower piece; the ribbon and cloth may
be of the same or contrasting colors.
Cute little baskets three or four inches
in diameter can be bought at the notion

Justeed of the old-fashioned, clumsy
pinoushion, suppose we have a pintray
made as follows: Five piece of card
board pentagon shape, each measuring
V't inches at the bottom, and 2?i inches
at the widest part, the two upper sides
to quite a sharp poiut; the bottom is
also a pentagon, measuring V, inches at
the sile. Cover each of the aide pieces
and the bottom on both sides with Bilk or
satin in contrasting colors, the outside
pieces being worked with a tiny spray
of flowers, and the inside with a row of
coral or cross-stitching along the npper
two edges; the bottom is left plain. Sew
the side pieces carefully together, and
join to the bottom; work each point over
with coral or cross-stitching. Tiny gold
beads are sewn along the npper edge, and
larger ones at the points and at the top
and bottom of each joint.
A Marriage Prevented.
Tho question bow near a couplo can
come to being married without actually
becoming man and wife, was answered in
a very extraordinary case reported not
long ago, from Lyons, in France. All
tbo preliminaries, including the mar
riage contract the bride being an
heiress had been arranged with the
utmost harmony, and tho day bad ar
rived for the civil marriage
which, under the law of the
republic, is the binding one on the
morning, and for tbe blessing of the
priests at the cathedral altar in the after
noon. Tho parties were before the
mayor, and what a Chicago lawyer, ad
dressing a divorce jury, called "the fatal
question" had been asked of each and
duly answered, wherenpon the mayor
bad tendered bis personal as well as
official congratulations, and placed bo
jfore them the attesting document which,
when signed, made them lawfully man
and wife. At this critical moment the
proceedings were interrupted by the en
trance of a telegraphic messenger. The
couple paused, pens in hand; the wit
nesses stared in surprise, and the mayor
dropped his spectacles in a nervous
fit as be handed the message to
the bride's father. The tele
gram ran as follows: "Monsieur
(the bridegroom) has already been
married in Germany, and bis wife lives.
Voucher! are on the way to you by
post." The Mayor, as he is bound to do
under the Civil Code when a warning
comes, postponed the authentication for
a veek. The , week passed, but no
vouchers came. Everybody agreed the
telegram was a malicious trick perpe
trated by some revengeful rival every
body excepting tho bride, who had been
brooding over the telegram, and to tho
surprise of every one, believed it. She
sent back the diamond ring, the silver
candle-stick, thn gold-mounted prie-dieu,
tho breviary of the lady who was almost
her mother-in-law, and annulled the set
tlement. The Judge de Paix of Lyons
and the Mayor had a consultation with
the lawyers" and the notary, and it was
unanimously agreed that the couple, as
tho English peasantry put it, wero still
a couple and not a pur. All inquiries
instituted by tho bridegroom with re
gard to the Bender of the telegram
proved fruitless; the only information
ever obtained being that it was paid for

A lUin nMe 'tory.
The Faoder-Bressler story, which
created so much iuterest iu Philadelphia
and New York about half a year ago, has
cropped out iguin. It will be remem
bered that "Benny" Faeder, as he was
generally known, was a young musician
who resided with his parents iu Phila
delphia, and as a boy was the idol of all
the Hebrew young ladies of his acquaint
ance. Mr. Bresslor, an extensive fur
dealer in New York, was attracted by
the boy's musical cloverness and ho sent
him to Europe for the purpose of com
pleting his musical education. Mr.
Bressler's wife and daughter resided in
the German fatherland somewhere, and
it was agreed that the young musician
should live with them. Kcsa Bressler
was very haudsome, aud Benny was very
fascinating. They fell in love. But
Mrs. Bressler also loved the young mu
sician, although unaware of her daugh
ter's affeolion. When Benny's musical
education was finished hu started home.
Mrs. Bressler and Rosa came on the
Fame steamer, and before the voyage
was ended mother and daughter discov
ered the state of affairs, and there wero
bitter recriminations. Young Faeder
obtained a position as second violinist
in tho orchestra of the Chestnut
Street Theater. Miss Bressler came
to tho Faeders ou a visit. Mrs.
Bi easier, being suspicious, accompanied
hci daughter. tODo day Rosa and Benny
disappeared, aud nobody knew whero
they had gone. Mrs. Bressler became
very angry, smashed several windows in
the house of the Faeders, and went back
to New York. After a short time Rosa
ret u vn od ami said she had been on a
visit to some other friends, and her
mother believed the story. Young
Faeder in the meantime went South.
This was the way tho matter stood when
the sensation died ont, six months ago.
Now coraes chapter, secoud. Y'oung
Faeder bus lately leon acting as leader
of fie orchestra at the Richmond House,
Ath.utic City, where Mrs. Bressler and
her daughter have boen occupying
apartments on Virginia avenue, opposite
the Virginia House. The mother's ad
miration for tho musician Las not ceased.
Neither has the daughter's. Knowledge
of the fact led to a severe quarrel be
tween the two the other day. Mrs.
Bressler fr.rbado Faeder coming to the
house. He came, notwithstanding, and
on Sunday night demanded to see Rosa,
as she was his wife. The whole story
was then confessed. Rosa and the mu
sician had been married some time. Mrs.
Breesler is completely broken down by
tbe news, and gone to tbe mountains,
The young couple are united by the sea.
Mrs. Bressler has threatened punish
ment, it is said, when she recovers from
the shock. .
